It was emphasized that materials which were thought to be of no use and were thus thrown as litter were used to make impressive artistic work by the students at the helm of their tutor Emine İyikalp. Thus, many useful materials were created from waste materials.
The exhibition revealed certain things such as making a snowman out of a plastic cup, and making a tower out of cardboard cups. Thus, the message given through the exhibition was to reconsider items thought of litter and let the children create their imaginations.
